A friendís recommendation drove me here on a recent trip through Denver, and this was probably the best food of the trip. This place looks like a cafe or coffee shop from the outside, but inside was a quaint and somewhat retro wood-paneled bar area with what looked like a lounge in an adjacent area. There were about 10 drafts on while I was there, and a somewhat inclusive bottle list with about a 60/40 mix of locals and national beers. Happy hour made the beer about $4 for a pint and then the food was awesome. Nacho fries- a pile of fries with the toppings like nachos, a great salad with a mix of greens and seeds, and tofu and tempeh sliders in chipotle sauce with some macadamia nut key lime pie for dessert. The waitress was on-the-spot and knew beer enough to talk for a little bit about the beers. The beer selection could have been more extensive, but they do pretty well with the taps they have. All in all, an awesome place that I will hit every time I am in town.

No A/C, be warned, the fries are fantastic. Very cool place, walkable to any Uptown residents.

Decent enough place a coiple of blocks out of Downtown. Quieter for that and with a nice corner terrace. Dark inside but my server lent me a reading light. Passable food, half-cosy atmosphere and a beer list that features cans, something that we Brits donít understand.

Finally got around to checking this place out - brought my wife here for dinner for her birthday (her suggestion) - a cozy spot just outside of downtown - vibe is relaxed but kind of hipsterish - I was not impressed at all by the beer selection - six tap, none of which were anything most bars in town do not carry - quite a few bottles, but also not impressive - in short, the beer selection was pretty much just the big five CO craft brewers - they also serve all of the beer in frosted glasses - wtf? - menu is small but fairly creative - I guess you would call it "new American," but they have a few items with an Asian twist - the food was simply so-so, and some of it was so salty that I could hardly taste anything else - nothing jumped out at me and made me look forward to the next bite - something interesting to note is that the restrooms are decorated with half-naked pin-up style photos of the female waitstaff - not sure what that is all about - itís a decent spot, but nothing about the food or the beer selection leads me to believe that I will make a return visit - skip this and go to Euclid Hall instead.

(Visited 10/2009): Jonesyís is located on the north side of the city near Benedict Fountain Park on E 20th Ave. There is parking on the street in the nearby areas.
There is a small patio, while on the inside there is a bar on the left side and a few booths opposite. There is also a separate room for additional dining seating. The motif includes maroon colors, wood and white chandeliers.
Jonesyís has over 30 bottles available, all of which are from Denver/Colorado (Breckenridge, Great Divide, Odell, Bristol, Oskar Blues etc). There are 2 taps, both of which are occupied by Oskar Blues (Ten Fidy and Barrel-Aged Old Chub on my visit). The available beers are all staged above the bar and on the menu.
Service was good at 5pm on a weeknight as we were there right when they opened and had the bar to ourselves for awhile, although the place steadily filled up. The bartenders were knowledgeable about the beers and made good recommendations.
The food recommendation was mac íní cheese fries and they were spot on.
Overall I really liked the focus on local microbrews, low key atmosphere and tasty food and would definitely seek this place out on future visits to Denver.

Underrated, almost cult following among the people who know. Kind of place where young people allow their palates to grow up. A few steps up from pub grub across the board; a loyalist to Colorado beers (albeit in bottles), which shouldnt leave a lot of room for complaining if youíre looking for a good beer, Jonesy also puts out a sexy calendar featuring the female staffers. Enjoy, nerds.

Stopped by after a ski trip to summit county. Was hoping for a little better selection. However, food by far compensated. Tried mac n cheese and truffle fries, as well as Thai seasoned muscles and main course. Cioppino aswell was above average. Staff ok knowledge on beer selection but were very attentive. Will make it a regular stop when coming thru Denver.

Visited for dinner on our trip to GABF in 2009. When we arrived on this Friday night, the place was completely packed, but even then the wait was only about 15 minutes. The interior was nicely decorated and dimly lit given a very pleasant ambiance. The beer selection (to Florida natives) was outstanding with CO craft beers taking precedence. They just happened to have Great Divide BA Claymore Scotch Ale and Oscar Blues BA Ten FIDY on the evening we were there. The food was excellent and somewhat reasonably priced for the quality. Overall, an outstanding experience, and we would recommend to anyone visiting the area.

update: the food has gone downhill sharply since the new chef came aboard last year. iím hoping they figure out a way to move on and replace him, because itís dragging down what was a favorite fun gastropub. inside itís attractive and comfortable... located not far from downtown Denver. Retro wood paneled bar with local artists featured on the walls above the tables and booths. Usually packed late at night, the beer list is almost exclusively Colorado micros. Bottles are mostly what is offered, but they do have a situation with Oskar Blues to offer some of the Stranahan bourbon aged beers on tap. The food is what should bring you in - creative and delicious dishes that are good for dinner or late night drunk food... macaroni and cheese w/ truffle oil and broccoli is a favorite of mine, as are the truffle and aoili frites and the sliders (steak, lamb, ahi tune, veggie... all are good). Probably the best place for quality food with a decent selection of local micros.
